While Lori?with Reginald the stuffed pink rabbit and Edmond Terrance the stuffed tiger in tow?hunts down a missing document and the archaeologist digs up a lot more than artifacts, Dimity?s magic blue notebook provides the key to buried secrets and domestic malice, and shows all the residents of Finch that even the darkest acts can be overcome by human forgiveness. ?

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best of the "Aunt Dimity" books, but still fun Another charming, quirky installment of the Aunt Dimity series. The fun aspects are all here: the magical journal through which Dimity communicates with Lori, Reginald, the pink bunny with a mind of his own, and the facility to cause trouble, Lori's loving and long-suffering husband Bill, and, of course Lori herself. This book adds in Lori and Bill's twins Will and Rob, and a number of the villagers of Finch, where Dimity's cottage that Bill and Lori live in, is located. The impending Harvest Festival allows for the demonstration of the odd, but endearing aspects of small-town life and people. The festival is imperiled by an archeologist who may have found a Roman cache of antiquities, a missing document stolen from the Vicar's house, the interfering and bossing of the town's resident "empress", and the romatic travails of Lori's new nanny, Francesca. All in all, the book is a sweet, fun romp through a small English village. I enjoyed it!
